The Possibilities are Endless

Have you seen the deal of the month? It is jam packed with so many goodies the possibilities are endless. My inspiration for this kit came from the adorable teal sea shell beads. I could have used 2 dozen more beads and not just on my layout but on tons of other craft projects. My daughter would have adored a sea shell necklace or bracelet. But I was greedy and took the necklace/bracelet idea and used it straight on my layout. I stung the beads through the twine and spaced them out randomly. Then I anchored the bow with large Creative Charms Pure Blossom gemstone flower and shimmering seashells.






(Supplies Used: Cardstock Bazzill, Patterned Paper October Afternoon and Studio Calico, Stickers Studio Calico, Alphas Basic Grey, Eyelets from American Crafts, Creative Charms Rhinestone Gem Stickers, Pure Blossoms and Sea Shell Beads, Twine Jillibean Soup and font Traveling Typewriter downloaded from the Internet)












When I scrapbook I try to think in layers. I always start with a cardstock base (that gets all covered up) then I layer patterned papers and photos and so on .... In this layout I not only layered all those elements but the embellishments as well. Notice how I layered the adhesive rhinestones in the center of the gem flowers. Layering the different colors allowed my gem flowers to really jump off my page.



Happy scrapping, enjoy the deal of the month and get layering .... Summer :)
